G7, or Group of Seven and the Seven Heads of the Beast?
Q: Who are the G7? Is this the 7 heads of the dragon or the Beast in Revelation?
A: G7 summit, in 2021, appears to be a gathering of 9 heads of State.
There are two extra people (heads) included in the G7 2021 family photo:
#8 -- EU representatives -- Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel -- Current President of the European Commission.
#9 -- Charles Michel is the President of the European Council.
G7 this year are France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Canada, the US and the UK. Each country is represented at the summit by their head of state.
The Current 7 Heads
#1 -- United States of America --Joe Biden
#2 -- United Kingdom -- Boris Johnson --
#3 -- Canada -- Justin Trudeau --
#4 -- Germany -- Angela Merkel
#5 -- France -- Emmanuel Macron
#6 -- Italy -- Mario Draghi
#7 -- Japan -- Yoshihide Suga
Where is Spain? And how about China?
It is very tempting to quote Revelation, so I will -- We will go with the KJV, as the most familiar -- after this brief comment:
Seven Heads and Ten horns. We have Seven Heads, plus 2 and if China or Spain were to be added we would have the Ten, not the Seven (Ten Horns?). In the explanations given by the Angel is that the Seven Heads are a succession of Empires upon whom the Whore sits or had sat as some time in past, European history. The Ten Horns are ten powers or kings that are only around for a period of time and are not actual Kings but serve as if they are kings, having no actual Kingdom, as the prophetic word says and how this is to come about is only guessing until it happens. What we see happening today kind of explains, perhaps, the Leaders we see today -- kings or rulers who have no real kingdom?
What we are looking for, it seems to me, would be the union of the Ten Horns but right now, we seem to be at Nine. Over the past centuries there has been a lot of specualtion and books written about this, with no real visible and clearly defined meaning. One study makes a case for the 7 heads being the historical progression of the Roman Empire with the 10 horsn being the ten invasions the Empire suffered in its fall, with each of the 10, historical invasions ending up settling in as a controlling country -- thus, these ten historical progressions by other peoples become Ten representative countries as the main image of the European Union. Of course, the EU is, today, composed of some 54 nations as last count. Still, that prophetic view is very convincing, but then, so are others.
Anyway, it would seem that we are supposed to understand this. It seems the Angel speaking (Rev 17:7) to John is amazed that John did not understand what he was being shown and so he, the Angel, went on to explain. How is it that John should have understood all of this if all of this were only for the Future? For now, it is my opinion that the G7 is not the Seven Heads of the Beast but a logo to draw attention to the Seven Headed Beast. The leaders of the G7, however, number more than Seven and appear to be more applicable to the Ten Horns. Time will tell.
(Rev 12:3) And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. (Rev 13:1) And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. (Rev 17:3) So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. (Rev 17:7) And the angel said unto me, Wherefore did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which has the seven heads and ten horns. (Rev 17:8) The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. (Rev 17:9) And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits. (Rev 17:10) And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space. (Rev 17:11) And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition. (Rev 17:12) And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. (Rev 17:13) These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. (Rev 17:14) These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
